Re: To permanently block installation of Pulseaudio.

Hi, I'm trying to block any re-installation of accessibility (brail, screen readers and speech recognition...) packages, as well as printing, scanning and mail.

I will try the example above.

Re: To permanently block installation of Pulseaudio.

so far so good with the apt settings.

Funny thing, although I have got rid of most pulse-audio packages (I still have libpulse... and pipewire-pulse...)

occasionally a new folder is made in /home/glenn/ "pulse". It is empty, but I wonder how it is put there.

still a work in progress, pulse is like a virus, hard to pin down and eradicate.

Re: To permanently block installation of Pulseaudio.

Probably a system service that didn't get the memo when you removed it. Is there a way to examine the 'script' in a .deb file and see all the actions taken? That might provide a clue to a setting somewhere that was not completely removed.

Re: To permanently block installation of Pulseaudio.

Thank you for the tip.

I do know that I can inspect the scripts from a .deb package by unpacking it like a zip file, and then I can read the install scripts.

A bit of investigation involved, but it may be worth it.

Just recently I got another folder, called dconf as well. lol.

The adventure/journey continues. :-)
